Exton, PA (PRWEB) January 16, 2008
Scala, Inc., the world's leading provider of end-to-end digital signage software, today announced record sales for its financial year ending December 31, 2007.
Scala CEO, Gerard Bucas, stated, "In 2007 we achieved yet another new annual sales record with CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) exceeding 52% over the past two years alone. EBITDA (profitability) rose at an even higher rate. With consistent positive cash flow from operations and five consecutive years of profitability under our belt, Scala today has no debt and the strongest balance sheet in the industry. These results are especially satisfying as they are indicative of the strong acceptance in the market of our new InfoChannel 5 product line launched just over a year ago. With 2007 shipments to more than 65 countries, our four wholly-owned foreign subsidiaries maintained their strong performance each setting new sales records and together generating just over 50% of sales in both 2006 and 2007."
Scala continues to solidify its position as the global leader in the digital signage industry with the recent market report "World Digital Signage Markets" by leading research firm Frost & Sullivan, finding that Scala commands more than 35% of the worldwide Digital Signage software market. The company remains focused on providing end-to-end software solutions for centrally controlled digital signage networks used in a variety of both customer and employee facing applications deployed in retail, banking, quick service restaurants, gas stations, public spaces (airports, shopping malls, etc), hospitality and entertainment venues (theaters, amusement parks, casinos, etc), convention centers, etc. Supporting both interactive (e.g.: kiosks, touch screens, etc.) and passive playback of content which can be delivered across satellite or terrestrial (wired or wireless) broadband communication networks, the Scala InfoChannel platform is truly in a league of its own driving more displays around the world than all competitors combined.
With the strongest global reseller partner network in the industry, it is not surprising that in another Digital Signage market study, Frost & Sullivan also stated, "Scala has built a commanding lead in an industry that is seeping with as many companies entering the market as there are heading for the exit. Frost & Sullivan believes Scala's understanding of the market, experience in deploying large-scale networks and a well oiled global distribution structure will secure Scala's dominant position in the market."
Mr. Bucas goes on to say, "While most of our competitors are still struggling to survive and reach profitability, over the past 20 years we have assembled an unbeatable global team of both employees and partners that are the most experienced and passionate in our industry - all sharply focused on allowing our customers to deploy and control their own digital signage networks around the world."
